Dockdozer is on a distinguished road
New guy on the block, or just off his block!

Hello from Texas! I am an old guy from the old sailing school. Have not owned a boat in over 20 years, but it has never left my heart. Use to live on a Nor'sea 27, when I was in my 30s. Met my wife (A country girl) got married, sold the boat, and have raised three children (Almost) on a farm. Use to race all around Texas, (not in my boat of coarse). Raced one design, Tartan 10s, J29s, and others, and worked in the TORC on many other boats, Veracruz, Key West. Have delivered a few boats off shore. But that was a long time ago. Now I looking at a Pacific Seacraft 34. (I think is the perfect old man's boat) I don't think the old country girl is going to cross the gulf with me (that is why they make planes) but I want to spend at least one winter in the Caribbean, before I get to old. I don't think I can work the foredeck like I use to, that is why I had two son's.
My has sailing changed in the last 20 years. I had to start learning all over when I started looking at boats again. (WHAT!, chart plotter, AIS, and roller this and roller that) What ever happened to KISS?
So I want to thank all you sailors out their, and you guys that run this site from the bottom of my heart, for having the opportunity for a old salt to learn all over again, (Never had anything like this back when) here back at the farm so far away and so close to getting salt back in my face, and in my shorts.
May you all have fair winds, and a dry lee bunk!!!!!!!!
PS Dockdozer was the name I gave myself many years ago, some wear in the learning curve.
